Ooredoo upgrades network in desert areas
Ooredoo yesterday announced it has successfully upgraded its network sites in areas of the desert, in time for the 2017 camping season. The updates, which have introduced the latest Cat 16 technology to the network sites, will enable campers and visitors in the desert the chance to connect to 4.5G speeds.
Ooredoo is the first operator to meet this milestone in Qatar and has invested significantly in ensuring this upgrade is available for customers this camping season, to guarantee a smooth connection and great experience. With speeds up to 1Gbps, Ooredoo customers will be able to download an MP3 file of 3 MB in less than a second, a 950 MB HD TV episode in eight seconds, and a 15 GB Blu-Ray Movie in two minutes. To ensure that everyone can take advantage of these speeds, Ooredoo advise customers to invest in devices that support Cat 16 technology, such as the new LTE Mobile Router – the Nighthawk MR 1100 Mobile Router – which is available at Ooredoo Shops and on the eShop.
The new Netgear and Ooredoo device has been designed to be the best Mobile Broadband device ever, and on top of the ability to deliver incredible download speeds of up to 1 Gbps, and upload speeds up to 150Mbps, the Nighthawk MR 1100 Mobile Router can connect up to 20 Wi-Fi enabled devices at a time (the largest number ever for an Ooredoo Mobile Broadband device).
Manar Khalifa Al Muraikhi, Ooredoo Director of PR and Corporate Communications, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “We are continuing to invest in the Ooredoo Supernet to provide the best possible network experience for our customers. ”
